|My brother and sister in 1962|
For this layout I used some old Fancy Pants Designs papers from their Lilac House collection.
I did some stencilling on the upper left and lower right corners with molding paste. While the paste was still wet I heat-embossed it with Verdigris Antiquities embossing powder.
These are the dies and punch I used:
The two small flourish chipboard pieces were from a store that is no longer in business. I did a white crackle finish (Picket Fence Distress Crackle paint) and then inked them with Gathered Twigs and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks, wiping off the excess.
The other chipboard piece is by Blue Fern Studios.

I painted the Daisies collage grey and sponged some white paint overtop the bricks to give it a mottled effect. I then painted the flowers in various shades of turquoise, painted the stems green and did a wash of white overtop. I finished by gluing Express-O Yourself Prills in the center of each flower using Artquest Perfect Paper Adhesive (matte).
The medallion was made with Sculpey Ultra Light and a mold and then painted.

I painted it with Prima's Patina Effect Pastes and wiped Vintage Silk Opal Magic wax over the raised areas with my fingertip to highlight them. I glued a decorative brad in the center to add some interest.
Thank you so much for taking a look!
